Gorgeous Dress.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I had ordered another dress from RTR for the gala that was black and didn't fit right. I called 2 days before the event and had this dress overnighted. It fit perfectly and the color was just stunning. I would normally say I am a 2 in dresses, but they only had the 0. It sparkled just enough but wasn't over the top. The beading on top is clear rounds beads. The dress did not look good with gold shoes, I would definitely recommend silver. I received so many compliments. Thanks RTR for your great customer service.

Very different from pictured online

While the dress fit amazingly, it was nothing like the picture. The embellishments were much more sparkly then pictured and the dress was more of alternating strips of silver and blue instead of just a nice, metallic light blue color. I did not end up wearing it to my event.

Perfect for a spring wedding and dancing afterwards!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I kept getting complements all evening! The color was perfect for a day wedding and evening reception; I wore it with nude heels and simple jewelry. The beading around the neckline is enough but, it would've been lovely with a diamond necklace as well. Lilly doesn't disappoint when it comes to the cut and fit of their dresses! This fit wonderfully and the cut provided an hour glass shape that looks great on all shapes and sizes. You can wear with regular under garments and the dress, while form fitting, never felt tight even while dancing. I was so sad to send this one back!

Better on the Hanger

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This was, unfortunately, one of those dresses that looks much better on the hanger. When I opened this out of the package, I fell in love. However, I only got a 4 as the 2 was not available, and when I tried it on, I knew it did not fit quite right. I'm not sure if it was just because it was a size up from what I usually wear, but the dress had weird hip seams that were really pointy and really high up, which looked really weird on me. Also, it was relatively long, which is nothing bad, just that I was going to a more exciting event, not tea with grandmother. I pinned up the bottom to make the dress a little shorter, which fixed that problem but the fit was still just overall weird on me. Maybe it was just the sizing issue. However, I am very impressed with the service and I will be renting again!

This dress was absolutely stunning! I wore it to an outdoor wedding on the Boston Harbor and it was perfect for the affair. The detail around the neck line was so unique, I was getting compliments all evening long. I definiately recommend this for any summer wedding.

This was my first rental. The dress fit very well and was very elegant. Nothing negative! I got the most compliments I think I've ever received wearing this dress! I definitely recommend it as it looks and fits great on any body type. I wore it with silver accessories and silver shoes because it had such a silver sparkle to it. I wore it to a wedding and it worked very well for the elegant affair. You won't be disappointed!

I wore this dress to a wedding and received so many compliments on this dress. The dress was perfect for an evening summer wedding, and the embellishments around the neck really 'made' the dress. You don't need a lot of jewelry because of that, just some fun earring and a bracelet and you're good to go. The skirt portion of the dress was a bit more roomy than needed for me, but the top fit perfectly. I loved this dress, was sad to return it.

The color and style were perfect for the wedding I attended.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was great, but the the dress does not stretch at all. I usually wear a size 4 in dresses. I almost went up to the 6, but the 4 still fit better. I would also say that another reason why I did not give it 5 stars was because the material doesn't allow much air to flow through, which makes it tough when you are on the dance floor all night. :) I am still very happy with the rental and would certainly get it again.

I'll be the first to say that this dress isn't for everyone. However, if you're the type of girl who likes bling and sparkle, you will not regret renting it. The beading on this dress is absolutely beautiful. The stock picture is very deceiving - it is more of a light blue/turquoise color than silver, but there are silver inlays in the dress. The dress fits like a glove and has the signature Lilly build for a great shape.

Beach wedding

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this to a dressy-casual beach wedding and really fit the scene. The dress has enough glamour for night time thanks to the beading, but didn't look silly at the afternoon ceremony on the water. The length is sexy but still classy and my husband loved it!

This dress is awesome. It is UNIQUE, it is COMFORTABLE, the color is GORGEOUS. I would definitely purchase this dress. The jewels on the front definitely light up in some pictures and you don't need a necklace. I wore it with the earrings the model is wearing and it is one of my favorite outfits to date. My sister said I looked like a 60s girl ... but that didn't matter to me. I loved it!

This dress fits pretty true to size, I'm apple shaped and felt like it definitely flattered my figure. Definitely a lot more blingy than the pictures show but I didn't mind that! But if that's not your thing then go with a different dress. Overall I loved this dress!!! This was my first RTR experience and I definitely will be using it again!!

The pictures from other users were extremely helpful. The color is best described as Tiffany blue and looks best with silver accessories. Dress was extremely comfortable and would have worn a racer back bra vs traditional straps. It was about an inch longer than I would have liked but still looked good. Would rent again!

Many compliments! Prepare to be noticed. I wore it with silver sandals and a few rhinestone bangles because the neckline requires no jewelry at all. I also wore my hair up which is not the norm but it worked into kind so a retro sixties look. I think it ran big. After reading reviews I rented the 6 & 4. Ended up wearing the 4 & it almost felt roomy. Best color ever for blondes!

Pretty fabric and beadwork

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
So this dress is beautiful. But I shouldn't have worn it. I have finally have to face the music that shift dresses and sheaths look awful on my body type. I and just too curvy in the butt area, and it makes dresses pucker in unflattering places. This dress is not meant for anyone with hips or a little tummy. I have some excess weight around my middle, but not truly as much as this dress made me look like I had. I really thought it was so pretty though, on the right person it would have been 5 stars. I almost sent both the dresses and my back up back to RTR because everything I rented fit so badly, but then I would have had nothing to wear to this wedding. So I settled for this. It's well made, and the beading around the neck line is much more 3-dimensional than I expected, but it didn't bother me. Either size up a lot if you are curvy in this dress (but then it will probably be baggy else where), or pick something else.

Not as good as the picture

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This is a gorgeous dress on the model, but looks nothing like the it in person. It definitely has more of a grey color and is not intended for curvy women. I thankfully picked this up at the 18th street store and thankfully had a chance to try it on before I left the store. The size 10 was too big and when I asked for the 8 (because for my back up RTR advised to go one size up so I had the 12), the 8 wasn't available. I actually ended up being glad because I think the 8 would've fit better but the color would still be really bad. In some ways, I was glad this happened because I was able to choose another dress at the store. The second dress was much better and I was happy with that rental. It's just a shame because the cut of the dress was really nice otherwise and it would've been fine for the wedding I was attending.

Perfect for a huge, lavish summer wedding!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I'm a farm girl so I have no use for fancy dresses hanging in my closet. So I was thrilled when I discovered RTR. I was down to two dresses and chose this shift over one with a more shaped top and flared skirt. Then I decided I wanted the latter and tried to change it--too late. I had decided I didn't want to go with light blue. Also the 0 wasn't available so I wasn't sure if the 2 would be too baggy. But when it came I was surprised to find that the color is actually more of an aqua, which I really liked. It was also the right size and had some sparkle without being over the top. It was very comfortable too--I wanted something that looked elegant and feminine that I didn't have to tug on every time I sat down or got up. The only con: It's made in China. I just imagined a girl sitting at the next sewing machine making something to be sold at Target for a small fraction of the price of this dress...
